Best Sleeper Picks

Justin Rose

If you are looking for a solid week, the Rose is definitely the guy to pay attention to. In his 10 starts at the Augusta National, Rose has never placed outside the top-40. In fact, he has been in the top-25 in his last five starts and he finished T2 last year, making him someone that can be trusted to do well this year. An improvement from the 116 putts he had last year to around 108-110 could easily ensure that Rosey adds the Green Jacket to his stellar US Open win.

Phil Mickelson

Besides being a three-time winner of the tournament (in 2010, 2006 and 2004), Mickelson boasts of leading the Tour in scoring average this year. His showing in Houston (barring one hole) was a clear indication that old man still has it. Added to the solo 2nd he recorded at Pebble and 5th at Doral this season, it won’t be far-fetched to say that Mickelson will be among the golfers to watch out for on Sunday.

Danny Willett

If form is something to go by, then Willett warrants every bit of confidence as a sleeper. The 28-year-old golfer has finished in the top-4 in four of his last 7 starts, including that dramatic win at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in February 2015. At his first Masters appearance last year, he also showed that he could hang with the big boys, giving an all-rounded game to finish 38th. With the improvements he’s made since then, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he blew up the field to claim the coveted Green Jacket.

Other Names to Watch Out for

Outside the aforementioned top-favored trio of McIlroy, Day and Spieth, the other names you should watch out for in the Tournament include two-time Masters winner Bubba Watson, 2013 Masters winner Adam Scott, the red-hot Rickie Fowler, power hitter Dustin Johnson and Farmers Insurance Open winner Brandt Snedeker.
